The Golan Heights referendum bill will go to the Knesset House Committee for a second and third reading, after six members voted for bill and two opposed.

The bill states that any government decision to cede territory under full Israeli control, such as the Golan Heights or east Jerusalem, must be voted by the Knesset and undergo a national referendum within 180 days if passed.

This requirement could be overridden only by the approval by 80 MKs.
